The tape is
recorded by Ad Delleman. It is in a red BASF Typ LGS 26 box on a brandless
spool. It is a recording of songs and a pig feast in Bano and songs in
Noeboeai. Side A starts with the story that Ad Delleman was asked by the Kepala
of Noeboeai to record traditional songs and send the tape to the RONG for broadcast.
Unfortunately, a number of women had to go to a funeral so the recording was
less grand as wanted. Anyway, the result is on this side of the tape. Side B
starts with a speech in the Papua language of Jansoe in Nimboran, followed by
traditional songs, tifa’s and a pig feast in Bano with comments on what is
happening by Ad Delleman. The languages are Dutch and the local Papua languages.
The digitised tape is part of the audio collection of the foundation PACE Papua Cultural Inheritance. For more information or any messages or correspondence contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
